The stakes are high in today's data centers. Organisations have access to massive quantities of data promising valuable insights and new opportunities for business. But data center architects need to rethink and redesign their system architectures to ingest, store and process all that information. Similarly, application owners need to assess how they can process data more effectively. Those who don't re-architect might find themselves scrambling just to keep from being drowned in a data deluge.
Mountains of data promise valuable insights and innovation for businesses that rethink and redesign their system architectures. But companies that don’t re-architect might find themselves scrambling just to keep from being buried in the avalanche of data.
The problem is not just in storing raw data, though. For businesses to stay competitive, they need to quickly and cost-effectively access and process all that data for business insights, research, artificial intelligence (AI), and other uses. Both memory and storage are required to enable this level of processing, and companies struggle to balance high costs against limited capacities and performance constraints.
The challenge is even more daunting because different types of memory and storage are required for different workloads. Furthermore, multiple technologies might be used together to achieve the optimal tradeoff in cost versus performance.
Intel is addressing these challenges with new memory and storage technologies that emp

Factory production lines know the right jig or fixture speeds production, which increases productivity. But that’s just the beginning. Well-designed tools are more ergonomic, offering both increased worker safety and productivity, as well as cost savings. Traditional machining produces heavy, costly, multi-piece tools that become an even greater liability as repetitive motion injuries erode line productivity with worker disability. Redesign means even more protracted timelines for machined parts. While essential to efficiency, accuracy and safety, jigs and fixtures are often considered a necessary evil in the overall production process. Costly, protracted timelines for machined jigs and fixtures are the culprit here, especially for the often complex designs necessary to meet unique part needs. This, along with certain complex designs that simply cannot be manufactured using traditional methods are a reality on the production floor. But there is a better way. 3D printed jigs and fixture
